I didn't get out this weekend to take more photos, so I have been going through old photos and editing.
These are photos of my friend Nikia when she was pregnant with Isaiah. I appreciate Nikia and Sam so much!! They are wonderful, always patient and graciously let me take photos of them!! Thanks guys!!

Today I went out with my photography class on our first field trip. It happened to be a very cloudy, overcast day but nonetheless we ventured out to practice the new techniques we've learned. Here are some of my favorite shots.
I still have more to practice so I plan to go out again tomorrow. Hopefully I can convince Enrique to go with me. There are so many nice walking trails and locations to shot here in Manhattan!!

I love visiting the zoo!! Our zoo here in Manhattan is small but I think it is amazing to see the animals! My husband doesn't feel the same way. I always give him a hard time because he never wants to take me! Well, since Enrique was going to be working all day, I decided to go on a date... with my camera. It was a bright sunny afternoon and I just thought I would enjoy the day making photographs.
This was my lucky shot!! This pregnant bobcat was moving all over the place, pacing back and forth and I couldn't get my camera to autofocus on the cat instead of the fence. So, I set it to manual focus and waited!! I was crouched down on the ground so that I could get eye level, after about 5 mins I got it!! I knew I had it, I left the zoo very happy!!
This was the best I could do. If only I had a zoom lens but that will have to come later. Even so, I think it is really nice contrast with the bright colors of the tiger and the white snow.

It is finally Friday!! I had a very stressful week so I wanted to go take some photos before the sunset. I went to the river. Some of the river was iced over still and looked so beautiful, I wanted to try and capture it.
I was trying to capture the running water over the rocks. Turns out I need a tripod to get the right effect!
